BOOK REVIEW THE JUDAS SCAR BY AMANDA JENNINGS

Scars. We all carry them. Some are mere scratches. Others run deeper.

At a school rife with bullying, Will and his best friend Luke are involved in a horrific incident that results in Luke leaving.

Twenty-five years later their paths cross again and memories of Will’s painful childhood come flooding back to haunt him. His wife, Harmony, who is struggling after a miscarriage that has hit her hard, wishes Will would open up about his experiences. But while Will withdraws further, she finds herself drawn to the charismatic stranger from her husband s past, and soon all three are caught in a tangled web of guilt, desire, betrayal and revenge.

Firstly a huge thank you to Amanda who kindly sent me a copy which included a signed card .I was due to meet her on Thursday but unforeseen circumstances prevented that but least now I have the opportunity to tell her face to face if I do that her book was amazing!!!!!

I had seen so many fellow book bloggers raving about it  so was really intrigued and il b honest the cover didn’t give much away I didn’t think . T his only added to my curiosity !

I picked this book up and literally didn’t put down till I finished …I couldn’t I was sucked in submerged into a world of Amanda’s writing.

I actually have a headache I was that focused and involved …. this book grabs you and your hooked. The intensity of the storyline and the characters  is chilling and gripping .

It shows how when you don’t deal with childhood trauma and issues it can affect how you function as an adult .I studied psychology for many years so human behaviour and thoughts fascinate me and I loved learning about Freud and he would have had a lot to say about childhood and the links to problems in later life .

I loved how it was mixed narrative and the flow of the story.

This is an addictive ,dark passionate and unforgettable read .

Whether ive done this book justice in this review I don’t know but just go read !!!
